Evelyn Haertig Books & Purses
More Beautiful Purses
When Antique Combs and Purses was released it quickly became apparent that a second volume was necessary to deal in depth with antique purses. During the next 7 years, thousands of photographs were taken, years spent on research, a small fortune invested in frame and purse examples, and hundreds of purses restored in order to write this book.
This fine quality, comprehensive reference book has set the standard for purse collecting and can be found in the libraries of most great museums and collector’s personal libraries. This book is invaluable to collectors, libraries, and antique dealers who wish to understand their collection. The price of this book is less than the expense of one good purse.
576 pages, 8.5 “x 11” , 574 full color photographs, 341 black/white photographs, hard cover, smythe sewn, five color glossy jacket, shrink wrapped
